Demand, Outlook, and Financing of 55+ Single-family and Multi-unit Housing

America’s population is increasingly aging: according to Census Bureau’s projections, roughly one in three will be 55 years and older by 2060, up from about one in five in 2010. The aging population will require amenities and communities that will enable the older population to continue to live well and to function ably, whether they choose to age in place or live in adult communities. In this presentation, Dr. Sean Becketti presents Freddie Mac’s study of the demand for 55+ housing and the agency’s goals and programs to finance housing amenities and facilities that meet the needs of the seniors.
